Dear AllHope you are all keeping in well. We have some updates on recent BONSAI activities :
1) We are presenting our ontology and its application across several virtual conferences:
3) Last friday (16th September 2020), we had an introductory meeting with Ken Bagstad (Research Economist, USGS’ Geosciences & Environmental Change Science Center ). He is involved with the development of data and models for the Artificial Intelligence for Ecosystem Services(ARIES) project, which has developed web-accessible and stand-alone software tools to assess ecosystem services for environmental decision-making. The AIRES project members have been working with the use of semantics and machine reasoning to enhance data discoverability for several years. They are keen on further discussions on collaborations with BONSAI. We can potentially have another meeting this November to discuss the possibilities for collaboration.
Moreover, they are happy to provide an exclusive workshop for BONSAI members on the use of their k.LAB software - A specialized tool to import, annotate, and publish data and models on the k.LAB semantic web, which makes them easier to share, reuse, and link. Our member Benjamin Portner will be in correspondence with all of you to find a suitable date for the workshop.
